Revolution

Don’t believe
conformity
Don’t believe
in sin
Don’t believe
in losing
with everything to win
Don’t believe
in false absolution
Don’t believe
greeds game
Don’t believe
in apples first
and women are to blame

Don’t believe
in subjugation
Don’t believe
the lies
Don’t believe
in casting out a truth
by simply blinding eyes
Don’t believe
the reasons
when reasons
sway to whim
Don’t believe in
supplication
when the poor fight
instead of them

I
Believe in Revolution

Don’t believe
submission
Don’t believe
wakeful sleep
Don’t believe
in silence
when all you
sound of sheep
Don’t believe
humility
Don’t believe
in fame
Don’t believe
any one
has power in a name
Don’t believe in
vision
when everyone is blind
Don’t believe in
unify
when no one has the time

I
Believe in Revolution

Don’t believe
right
makes lies a million truths
Don’t believe
in the ignorance
of our voting youth
Don’t believe
in weapons
mass destruction of lives
Don’t believe
in oppression
suffocating light
Don’t believe
apathy
or the religious right
Don’t believe
in agenda
propagating lies
Don’t believe
the victim
is wealth in disguise
Don’t believe
injustice
Don’t believe
love is blind
Don’t believe
affection
in another brings demise
and Don’t Believe
Noms miranda
protects you or I

No I
I
Believe in Revolution

I
Believe in
revolution
Believe in
radical solutions
Believe in
making right
fucked up
corporate prostitution
Believe in
walking forward
When all they want
is back
Believe in
smashing cookie
cutter in stereo conviction
Believe in
storming
wall street
where dollar gives permission
Believe in
my right to
choose
my own righteous path

I
Believe in revolution

Blind Reason

Motivated by sympathy
orchestrated by fear
out of reach
like pealing a peach
the media holds hands
with the devil.
Let me get my shovel
for all the shit
smothering and damp
thrown out into the world
by clamoring salmon
claiming
discrimination is written
and so it should be
as we see
not as it was intended
or was it?
Translation
misinterpretation
regurgitation
mix into a glass of
almost got it
and left behind
on a bus to nowhere
on a bridge to anywhere
get me out of here!
There is
to much blind
reason

to the negation
segregation
manipulation
taxation with
no representation
exclusivity
not you
only me
mentality.
Why not seek civility?
Be you and be me
not us against them
count your friends
1 to 10
million waging a war
fighting for more
democracy…
It’s crazy, when freedom
should ring
it only fizzles
in rain drops and drizzle
for the haves.
Was it not womens voices
standing in traffic violations
beaten and thown in chains
that brought out the bell
with determination?
Why can’t we,
see
like them
honor our dead
and lay out our cause
at the feet
of invisible motorcades
and escapades of political
meanderings
so the blindness
can be removed
and you and I be moved
to peaceful affections.
